Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Noninvasive sensors mostly utilize samples of human breath, sweat, tears, saliva, and other body fluids. They have attracted extensive attention due to their small size, low cost, anti-interference nature, and the ease of their integration in wearable devices. Noninvasive sensors generally first transform sensitive biological materials into biometric elements and then detect their biological signals through different methods and convert them into optical or electrical signals to detect the objects to be measured. Through noninvasive and continuous screening of biochemical markers in the human body, disease prognosis, diagnosis, management, and health supervision can be realized. Many have been put into daily use, including noninvasive blood glucose detection, electroencephalogram sensing, blood pressure detection, and so on. In addition, current research focuses range from common metabolites or electrolytes to more challenging biomarkers, including those found in sweat, for applications such as the detection of alcohol or low concentrations of uric acid and tyrosine.

This Special Issue will explore noninvasive sensors’ biomedical applications. Papers may address a wide range of noninvasive sensor applications, including, but not limited to, recent developments in the following fields: electrochemical noninvasive sensors, optical noninvasive sensors, microfluidic chip noninvasive sensors, and noninvasive biosensors, and their applications in medical diagnosis, health monitoring, and so on.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
